Most legal cases are time sensitive. In criminal cases, the U.S. Constitution dictates that a trial must be fair and “speedy” while in civil cases, the statute of limitations could be running out. Whether you are working on a criminal, civil, or other type of legal case, speed and accuracy are crucial.

So, how can you improve your speed and accuracy during legal proceedings? Keep reading to find out!

Fast is First

Most people want things fast – really fast – from fast food to fast lanes and fast passes, speed is more often than not the order of the day. The need for speed has carried over into professional spaces with at least 41% of legal clients expecting an email response within 6 hours.

Because supply has matched the demand for speed, most people are so used to instant gratification, they feel frustrated when something takes ‘too long,’ and this applies to legal cases as well. In fact, Google Trends data shows a stead increase in searches for terms like “how long does divorce take” or “how long does a lawsuit take.”

Clients want speed, but what if you can’t deliver? Why do legal cases take so long and what can you do to streamline the process?

Why Law Takes So Long

One of the reasons why legal cases take so long to resolve is that law and the legal system move slowly. In most cases, it takes decades to refine legislation through precedents and trial and error to the point where it applies to actual cases in a tangible way.

Additionally, delays in the legal system like trial backlogs, judge shortages, pandemic closures, and other issues plague the system and slow down the court process for almost every legal case. There are also constant changes to the law. In 2016 alone, 15,000 session laws impacted over 100,000 existing statutes. Massive overhauls to the legal system can have a ripple affect for millions of cases.

It’s also important to recognize that each case has its own difficulties and unique challenges that take time to resolve. For example, bankruptcy cases can either take a few months or five years depending on the case. These factors are outside of your control, but they can impact client satisfaction if the case goes on for too long.
